-centered approach to drug use. >> thank you. first of all, i want to thank the commission for holding this hearing and the commission staff who worked so hard for the last several months on this as people have been talking, the correlation and drug use is a barrier to our human rights. we're talking about how to bring this hearing and the human rights framework, i went back and look at the the united nations declaration of human rights. article 25 was about the right to help and it says that everyone has a help to a standard of living adequate to the health and well-being of himself and his family including medical care and necessary social services and the right to security in the event of sickness or disability. that is the right to human health as declared by the meditations and yet the extent to which we are treating people who use drugs as klaus means that we are denying people access to their human-rights. we are sentencing them to incarceration and wheat gave them for their health and community. trading people who use drugs as criminal designs is -- denies them access to health

almost round 40 a. for us, it is a the best way to connect because they live very far away and we do not get to see the mother rise. it is an important way for all of us to be able to connect with our families and with our communities. for americans living with disabilities, many of whom are also aging americans, broadband and commuters -- computers can provide even more critical tools for health and wellness. they allow someone with a speech impairment to e-mail her doctor, a person who is mobility limited to its in glasses -- classes online, and for someone else to work at home. 29% of people with disabilities would join the work force if telecommuting were actually a viable option for them. before working at home, however, broadband is now a necessity for anyone searching for a job. many job openings are only posted online. about 80% of fortune 500 companies only accept job applications online. and about 60% of working americans use the internet as an integral part of their jobs every single day. if you do not have broadband, you are increasingly cut off from these opportunities.

and housing but we've made that choice. i think if you compare us, though, to many other jurisdictions, we have a collaborative court continuum that is unmatched in other parts of the state. so i think to say they wood, it's not happening. and if you look at other jurisdictions throughout the state, you'll find heavy incarceration rates and not used. in fact the prosecutor is not using those programs. we're very fortunate in our district attorney. he is very visionary, and i just commend him for his stepping out there and taking this position which i support, also, in terms of we have got to focus on treatment rather than say, well, there's this program or that program when in fact the state hasn't funded it. so it's placed that burden on the local counties. >> tal, can you respond to marty's point and wendy's? >> i can say just based on my experience in dealing with individuals who have drug problems, most of the time i don't think that the threat of a quote, unquote, felony conviction is going to necessarily prevent them from using. i think what would make more sense is

thought about in the first place, where basically we are using all aspects of the law. 100% of it can also be spent on intensive committee supervision. the other elements of the law was that it established a post- release community supervision and this population that was supervised by parole, in essence. non-serious, non-violent population. and only on their first offense. we will talk more about this later in the presentation, but in fact, we have 67 of our current roughly about 310 that have 11 or more prior felony convictions. on average come the population that is coming from -- on average, the population and is coming from state prison have prior convictions. and the majority of others have very serious convictions. the state was not just looking at incarceration. we have a very high risk population. and san francisco have a high- risk population, whether you're talking about probation or mandatary -- mandatory crs because we do try to do so much to rehabilitate an individual and keep them on probation lager and make more intense than would, let's say, a county like fresno. and
